    I don't think that will decrease my brother's self-satisfaction, unfortunately. He also insists that "librarian" is not a real job.

    Sadly, at this point I think my 18-year-old brother knows more about my taxes than I do....

    So all I did was archive that one TPBM thread, and my post count jumped by about 700.

    I noticed you are a teacher, Miss Freckles... I hope the new semester goes smoothly for you, that your students are responsive, and that your load is "tolerable."
    P.S. if you want to contribute a title+author for our Narnian bookshelf, here is the link.

    Yep. All done. I have never studied that much for a test in my life--and the scary thing is, all the study seems to have been necessary. But anyway, I am FREE! So now I'm busy prepping for my brother's aesthetics/art history class, because apparently that is what freedom looks like.

    Oh, I just realized that I forgot to answer this....

    I think He Is There and He Is Not Silent is the book of his that my philosophy prof wanted us to read, although I got it in a set of three and read the others as well. If I recall correctly, I agreed with more of his arguments in that book than in some of his others.

    I've read three of his books and disagree with some of his views on philosophy: blaming Thomas Aquinas for separating nature and grace and thereby making way for the Enlightenment seems like an enormous exaggeration. There were plenty of philosophers during that time period more guilty of presaging modernism than Aquinas. Why not blame everything on William of Ockham, the Franciscan who stole some horses and ran away?

    I think Schaeffer's greater contribution was his ability to communicate with both Christians and non-Christians, encouraging them to ask serious questions about truth. He helped people from both groups realize that Christianity didn't have to be intellectually lightweight. In my book, his most important impact was achieved more on a personal than a theoretical level.

    He was also willing to treat waste and pollution of the environment as a serious theological issue before doing that became cool. He wrote a book on the topic; I haven't read it yet, but I'd like to.

    Hi Miss Freckles,
    I like your little dragon profile picture
    Thought I'd invite you to the Riddles contest in Cair Paravel.
